Coming from a fellow 4Runner owner, I would say that doing more than EPA rated is definitely possible. I sure hope 25 MPG is doable, because I have a similar list of planned mods and I'm actually hoping for a better outcome.

In terms of gauges, you should also look at the UltraGauge. Cheaper and more gauges. There's also the bluetooth versions to look at.

Another mod to look at would be to install manual hubs. Not sure if they're available for that generation, but if you can get them you should be able to gain at least 1 or 2 MPG.

Another thing to look at is to get LRR tires for summer. I'm sure you need the heavy treads in winter being in Colorado, but at least in the summer you can take advantage of better tires.

Are you on any 4Runner forums?

Keep us posted with what happens!
